    ic-racer, I don't think Umut is going to receive the Super-8 Leicina. From the earlier posts, I believe it is an older, simpler Regular-8 model.

    Thanks, Bill. Would it be this one? http://www.super8data.com/database/c...leicina_8s.htm

    Bill, ic-racer's post #21 in this thread contains links to a few pages from the Leicina 8s and 8sv service manual. These are both 8/8 cameras. None of the pages is particularly relevant to the OP's major concern, dead motor and dead electronics. They do, though, make the point that there's little in the way of electronics in those cameras.

    Ic, even a humble Bell & Howell would do, and the better grade of clockwork B&H cine cameras have good lenses too. I shot with one off and on from '55 to '61, got fine footage. Not, of course, as fine as my father did when he took it to Japan in '53.

    Ic, that's what our boy bought. No single frame.

    Umut is dedicated to Leica, and would probably not want a Bell & Howell.

    I had a Bell & Howell, a hand-crank single-8 camera with three-lens turret and single frame mode.

    I keep looking for that movie I shot with mine because I can show what fun it was to use a movie camera in single frame mode, as if it was a regular camera. It was a blast.

    More evidence that Leicanuts are nuts.

    Here's what you might get if you use a single-8 movie camera in single frame mode:

    Bill, 8 mm film nomenclature confuses everyone. Single 8 is Fuji's riposte to Super 8; same gauge and format as Super 8 in a cassette with separate feed and take-up spools, can be spliced with Super 8.

    For those who don't know, 8/8's camera gate is ~ 3.5 mm x ~ 4.8 mm. Tiny. Super 8's (and Single 8) is ~ 4.2 x ~ 5.8. Not quite so tiny. Kodak's disc camera (8 x 11) is said to have failed in the market because of limited enlargeability.

    Ah, right Dan,

    My old camera used Regular-8, Double-8 or just 8mm - the kind that comes in a 25-foot reel that you run through once, flip over, run through again and then after processing it has to be slit.
